Valentine’s Day Heart Art Ideas for Kids
Does your artsy child enjoy anything that has to do with paper crafts? Stock up on Valentine’s Day red and pink colored paper, break out the scissors and cut heart after heart after heart. With a handful of hearts or more, your child is ready to make all kinds of holiday themed art. Check out these easy Valentine’s heart projects for children of all ages!
Punch a hole on each side of the hearts. String the shapes together with festive heart-printed, glitter-covered or red and pink ribbon. If you don’t have ribbon at home, use yarn instead. Alternate colors or sizes of heart cut-outs to create a pretty patterned effect. Your child can also use clothespins to clip the hearts to a line of twine.
Decorate your home with a heart-filled poster—or a few. Start with an over-sized piece of scrap cardboard or a piece of poster board paper. Glue the hearts onto the board, collage style. Overlap the edges and encourage your child to vary the angles of the hearts. Add a special loving saying with markers or crayons on the front of the poster to complete the craft.
Send special homemade Valentine’s Day greetings to friends and family. Your child can decorate each heart with a special drawing, covering it with glue and glitter or add sweet holiday themed stickers.
